Abstract:

Examines how Austrian citizens living near the Mauthausen concentration camp failed to react to the evil in their midst.

"The very emblem of cruelty and inhumanity in our age, Nazi concentration camps were built amid inhabited areas in the heart of civilized Europe. How did citizens living near the camps cope with the evil 'next door'? How much did they know, and how did they find out? And how did or didn't they respond? To what extent did the silence of civilians contribute to the dynamic of destruction perpetrated against victims of the Holocaust?"--Jacket.
